    yea maybe i missed the point in doing raffles with such an item like that.
    For me was a Raffle to deleted Gold / Coins out of the World and not to keep money in the World.
    But it seems im wrong.

    if people are so worries about this deed being sold, they could easily do as Shane said and have him bless the item itself, or they could make this character bound (like the ring of forgiveness).

    Either or, i think it's pretty darn risky to hold onto 100+m gold and hope the winner will sell it.

    I got a shiny new vanq +25 war fork this would sit nicely on....

    bought my ticket (just one) not going overboard like with the island raffle... still bent out of shape about that one.

    agreed -- while im against the idea of an item blessed deed to begin with(unbalancing PVP) it defeats the purpose of a gold sink if people can just save their gold to buy it outright instead of trying to win it in the raffle.

    $.02 from a fat ***.

    People know the expected value of the prize. The masses also know they can't afford the expected value of the price on the open market. The ones who can afford it would still rather buy tickets in an attempt to get the prize at a "discount".

    @Shane

    How exactly will the winner be chosen? What program will be used to ensure it is truly random? Will the drawing be streamed to ensure honesty? Just want to make sure I have a fair chance before I sink all my gold into this. I know I won't have much of a chance compared to the amount of gold some people will put into this, but I still want to try.

    sadly if I win this all I got is a vanq +25 war fork as my "best" weapon.

    hate to use the scroll on it but... I will unless someone out there wants to donate a weapon to be blessed, to the winner. something worth the blessing.

    I think I would save up to buy a swing off someone's valorite runic hammer if I won this.

    is that something that you think can be done AFTER using IBD?

    could you imagine winning an IBD, only to find out it has like a 20 minute expiration timer. I would have to laugh so hard :D

    YOu don't have to use it right away. If you win the deed you can hold it until AFTER you aquire a perfect weapon. I was saying if I won I wouldn't use the ibd until I had enough gold to buy a charge from a valorite hammer to forge a perfect stat weapon. I think the real wait may be finding someone that has charges to sell. Usually if one exists on the server everyone hears about it.

    Yea I mean why would I put 1 pull on a dollar slot machine that gives me the chance to win a 80k car when I can just save up my money and buy the whole car... Because what is one pull.. hell what is two pulls.
